Crochet Kitchen & Bathroom Scrubbie Tutorial: Regular and Mini Size

Learn how to make kitchen and bathroom scrubbies using the Scrub-ology yarn from Hobby Lobby with this tutorial. These are perfect for washing dishes or in the shower. The mini size works great as a facial scrubber and is the perfect size for gift giving. These work up fast and are great favors for birthdays and bridal showers.

Supplies:

Crochet Needle Size 9: Susan Bates Brand I love the Susan Bates brand because the tips of all of the needles are pointed, which makes it a lot easier to enter stitches. I hate using hooks that are too round at the end, it makes it harder to work the yarn.

Yarn: Scrubology from Hobby Lobby

The video has full instructions for both the regular and mini sized scrubbies, but for those of you that would rather read a pattern, both are below.

Regular Scrubbie Pattern:

This pattern requires two circles to be made and joined together.

CIRCLE 1

Chain 5.

Round 1: Work 14 Triple Crochet into the 4th chain from the hook (2nd chain from the beginning). Keep the chain you are working in as tight as possible to keep your round compact.

Round 2: Work one single crochet into each loop along the top of the round. Keep your single crochets very loose. If you over tighten your round will pouf out. You should have 15 single crochets when you come back to your starting loop. Fasten off at the end of this round.

*Tip, place a different colored piece of yarn through your first single crochet, so you know where to end.

After you have completed one full circle, start your second.

CIRCLE 2

Round 1: Work 14 Triple Crochet into the 4th chain from the hook (2nd chain from the beginning). Keep the chain you are working in as tight as possible to keep your round compact.

Round 2: Work one single crochet into each loop along the top of the round. Keep your single crochets very loose. If you over tighten your round will pouf out. You should have 15 single crochets when you come back to your starting loop. Do not fasten off your second circle!

ASSEMBLE

Round 3: Take your first circle and place it behind your second circle to join them. Be sure to keep the side you tied off towards the inside (facing your second circle), so you won’t see the knot. Chain up one and single crochet through both top loops of each circle. Do this around the full circle and join back at the end. You should do 15 of these chain one, single crochets.

*No stitch marker is needed for this as you can clearly see what is connected and what isn’t.

FINISHING

To finish, loop through your first single crochet and either tie it off or leave a long loop out and tie off at the base of this loop. The purpose of the loop is to be able to hang it off of hooks in the shower like a bath pouf.
